Apologies for the dramatic thread title, but this is important to me.
While living in New York City for 13 years, my weight was a more or less consistent 152 lbs. Since moving to to the San Francisco Bay Area three years ago, my weight climbed to 174 lbs. UN--acCEPTable!! So, as of this last Monday, I am on a personal plan to get back to 152 lbs. by Christmas.
I figure that if I announce this, it will give me the incentive to stick to my diet and exercise program. (Since Monday, I've already shed a few pounds.)
So thanks for putting up with my self-centered rant! I will post progress reports each week.
(If anyone else is dieting, perhaps we can inspire one another...)
